Luckily for you, the earliest classes in college are usually at 8:30, and if you happen to not be taking a lab science or a language, then you hopefully won't encounter any of these early starting classes. So in other words, you theoretically have more time to sleep in coming from high schools that definitely started before 8:30 and involved commutes. However, because of procrastination, volume of work, and a host of other things, going to bed early in college is definitely not a norm, at least not for me. I'll make a quick list of the unexpected pro's to staying up in the wee hours of the morning.
1. You can work in relative quiet. With most people in bed, most study spaces on campus that are still open will most likely be empty. Common rooms and study rooms will probably be empty too.
2. You can make friends with other Night Owls. Bonding over staying up late, not being able to sleep, and having to do work is a great way to start a conversation with someone. Though this might make your work take longer, the friendships you could make are definitely worth it. One of my housemates next year I actually befriended in the common room at 4 a.m. when we were both working on papers, so I'm not making this up completely.
3. You can sample the local late night cuisine. Most places deliver until at least 2 a.m., with some places staying open until 3 a.m. even, such as the famous Pizza Days which you will get to know in one way or another in your time at Tufts. While eating so late at night might not be the healthiest thing in the world, you'll get to see what all the rage is about for six dollar large cheese pizza, buffalo chicken calzones, and take-out Chinese.
4. You can see campus in a completely different light. In the early hours of the morning, it's safe to say that campus is empty. I've stayed up all night on a few occasions, and seeing night turn into day and watching the sunrise is definitely one of the most beautiful things I've witnessed. While the price to pay is feeling tired and groggy, staying up to get work done late has the reward of an unparalleled view of the sunrise over Boston if you make it over to Tisch roof.
5. Just go to bed earlier. Sleep is wonderful and will become increasingly limited in supply as you get older, so enjoy it as much as you can now.
